The cultural incubator in development, aims to be a sustainable cultural hotspot with artist workspaces, a large project space for contemporary art, an artist-in-residence programme, an
educational programme and a semi-public Sculpture-Culture Garden. See Lab was born from a shared dream to establish a sustainable working community for professional artists and culture creators. Alongside the development and deepening of personal work, cooperative projects will be realised in the project space programme.
See Lab will rent out studios to professional art and culture makers with a ' Do It Yourself ' attitude. A typical studio is 50m2, making it possible to share a room and keep costs low. The studios are located on the ground floor and the first floor of the school building. The layout is designed so the semi-public spaces are located on the ground floor, making them easily accessible and
giving it a public character. The ground floor space will be furnished as a common room and will be used to meet, have lunch together, hold work meetings and organise the weekly Friday afternoon drinks.
All workspaces are occupied. We are working on the possibility of realising an additional seven workspaces.
Currently, all of See Lab’s workspaces are occupied. We are working on the possibility of realising an additional seven workspaces on the unique attic floor of the building. Are you a professional working, self-reliant innovative artist, filmmaker,
animator, creator or maker?And are you interested in this (potential) new workplace that is less than a two minute walk from the beach? Then don’t hesitate to send us your motivation, CV and website to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will keep you informed about the developments.
See Lab will develop a platform for art and culture of more than 130 m2. Our ambition is to offer a diverse and high quality range of exhibitions of contemporary experimental art and media art and thereby contribute to the art and culture of The Hague and the rest of the world.
See Lab will also develop an Artist in Residence programme called See Air. Artists in Residence is particularly suitable for (inter)national collaboration and thus an additional binding factor between The Hague and the rest of the world. We see this as an opportunity that must not be wasted. See Lab would like to give foreign artists the opportunity to stay and work at the coast of Scheveningen and introduce them to The Hague's thriving art scene.
Out of the workshops, the arts and culture creators will develop a varied educational program that will be offered to children from primary schools, secondary schools as well as to adults. A diverse offer of education as a stage for talent development.
At the back of our See Lab building is a large, paved courtyard. See Lab is going to take out the stone tiles and turn it into a sustainable Sculpture-Culture Garden with small-scale sustainable agriculture. A place where art, nature and culture are combined. A connecting place for local residents and artists with city veggies and fruit farming and where sculptures by contemporary artists can be admired.
